Zoomed way out on the screen the turns are not visible enough to see as you "ride along" the route. Much easier to follow along if zoomed in to where turns appear at the same time you are at the turn.

On my 350, the track line shows up on the map only if you "turn the track on" under apps. You can turn on as many tracks as you want. My line does not move and there is no arrow. Fwiw.

Just purchased my first GPS, a Garmin 62s and I have a lot to learn. I have Basecamp and topo maps installed on my computer. I tried to copy a gpx file from this site and my computer wants to save it as a php file. Why? Not sure what to do next? I did some searching but no luck.

Pretty normal, no idea why it does that though.

Let it save as .php then right click on the saved file, select "rename" and change the php to gpx.
Not all who wonder are confused

I've tried the gpx viewer and like it. Put some gpx files in dropbox. Opened dropbox in ipad mini and saw the files. Used open with to view. Easy. Need to try on road next.
"Have you guessed the riddle yet?" the Hatter said.

"No, I give it up." Alice replied. "What's the answer?"

"I haven't the slightest idea." Said the Hatter.

"Nor, I" said the March Hare.
